Now that the New York Jets have found adequate replacements in their front office, with the hires of head coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan, Gang Green can turn their attention to the 2015 NFL Draft. New York will pick sixth in Round 1, leaving them with several options. Since 2000, the Jets have had 20 first-round selections. They’ve certainly done well with most of those picks, drafting players like Shaun Ellis, Darrelle Revis, and Nick Mangold. They have also had their fair share of duds though, such as Vernon Gholston, Mark Sanchez, and Kyle Wilson.

2015 is a very big year for the Jets. Nobody will be expecting much from this team, but I believe that this team can shock a few people if Gang Green has a solid offseason. There are players on both sides of the ball currently that are difference makers, and if the Jets can address the quarterback and cornerback positions in particular, this is a team that can easily win somewhere between eight and ten games next season.

New York will definitely have the opportunity to make an impact on its roster through free agency, which begins March 10, but the draft will ultimately provide the most assistance for the Jets. Let’s take a look at five impact players that the Jets should consider drafting with the number six pick overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.
